Default Did I mention I WON in the casino?

No? Well I've told everyone ELSE I've come into contact with since the cruise!

I took a deep breath - remembered all the good advise I'd gotten and played roulette. First I placed a $1 bet on a $5 minimum space. Duh.....after feeling stupid for about 10 seconds, I placed the correct $1 bet on number 27 (my stepson's age). When I won and the dealer pushed this HUGE stack of chips in front of me I blurted out:

"Are those all MINE?"

Gave everyone at the table a laugh. But the bottom line is, for one day, I took $10 into the casino and came out with $45!! I was just about the happiest girl alive.

Next cruise - blackjack table.....

Hurray for you, Dorothy!!
My dh likes the black jack. I like the stupid one arm bandit. This cruise there is so much planned with our group, I doubt I'll have much time to spend in the casino.
We have pajama pary, family feud, pictureaniry, monolopy, name that tune, and Karioki.
Wow it's going to be a fun time.

I LOVE ROULLETTE!! My husband and I eloped and got married in Las Vegas and he played alot of roullette. He ended up winning enough to pay for the entire trip and come home with an extra $200 in his pocket. It was a wonderful trip. Oh yeah, the honeymood part was good too, .

Congratulations. I know nothing about gambling. The most adventerous as I get is the nickle slots, and bingo.

You go girl! Congratulations, and here's a tip on Blackjack:

You can print out a cheat sheet on the internet with the plays to make on blackjack depending upon the dealer's up card. If you play perfect blackjack strategy with this card the house has less than 1% advantage. You can use this card at the table, nobody will care and the casino doesn't mind. This is the best game in the house for the player, along with the pass/don't pass line on the craps table.

Regards,
Thomas

a rule of thumb on roulette..everytime you win, divide your winnings in half and put one pile to the side..keep playing until your other pile runs out..then cash in and leave...I once made $750 from my "savings stash" and I started out with my self imposed limit of $10. I used the $750 for a down payment on a cruise for next year..My girlfriend liked that idea

A *cute* little silver ladder that hooks over the side of the bed. I crawled up there once just to check it out and it was really, really comfortable.

I decided that if I finally take that cruise with my lady friends, I could sleep in the bunk.
